Three Alarm Fundraiser
Dinner/Dance and The Great Watusi Raffle
The fire departments of Paxton, Sutherland and Hershey have
responded to hundreds of fire calls and rescues in 2012. They've
supplied mutual aid whenever it was needed across the state. Now they
need some help.
You have two opportunities to win one of these massive sets of horns
to grace the wall of your hunting cabin or man cave! These Watusi are
more than 10 years old and the horn spans top 10 - 12 feet! They've
lived long and extremely non-productive lives, having no purpose other
than to mystify drivers along the country roads south of Sutherland. In
their death, they can make a contribution of $$ into the budgets of our
local volunteer fire departments, which have saved countless human
lives and homes through their valiant efforts.
Raffle tickets are $20 for the chance to win a complete Watusi cow 1,000+ pounds of meat (probably best if made into burger!) and a skull
with 10-12' horn span. What you do with it is up to you!
A $5 raffle ticket will give you the chance to win a skull with horns,
ready for the taxidermist. You have to make arrangements for shipping.
100% of proceeds will be divided equally between the volunteer fire departments of Paxton,
Sutherland and Hershey.
Email [email protected] if you're interested in purchasing some tickets and we'll make
arrangements for the transaction. You've got to hurry, though! The drawing is on the 17th of
November, so it's coming up FAST!
